Allow me to Summarize this Feminist Writing in the Washington Post: “What Al Franken Did Is Totally, Like, Rape Culture, But I’ll Give Him a Pass Because Partisan Politics Is More Important.”
The best part is where she says she is sure other Democrats in the Senate assaulted women and she doesn’t want them to lose their seats to Republicans, because that would be bad for women or something.
If I believed for one second that Franken is the only Democrat in the Senate who has done something like this, with or without photographic evidence, I would see that as the best and most appropriate option. But in the world we actually live in, I’m betting that there will be more. And more after that. And they won’t all come from states with Democratic governors and a deep bench of progressive replacements. Some will, if ousted, have their successors chosen by Republicans.
